Home in on close-up subjects with the Canon EF mount 100mm f/2.8 Macro Lens from Rokinon, which affords life-size 1:1 magnification along with a minimum focusing distance of 1'. This manual focus portrait-length lens also incorporates one high refractive index element and one extra-low dispersion element into its design to reduce chromatic aberrations and distortions throughout the focusing range. An Ultra Multi-Coating has also been applied to minimize flare and ghosting for increase contrast and color neutrality. A long focal length lens with close focusing abilities and a high magnification ratio, this macro lens is ideal for making close-up, detailed images of nearby subjects.

Rokinon 100mm f/2.8 Macro Reviews
Es un excelente lente, nos gusto mucho. Rokinon muy buena marca
Very sharp, feels just right in your hands, not cheaply constructed. Great value, just like other rokinon/samyang products
Very easy to control with a surprisingly large focus range. All the rings rotate really smoothly and stop exactly where you want it to.
very sharp and handy!
It works well with my Nikon D500 and Sony a6300 (with an adapter). It has focus confirmation on D500, which is helpful. With focus peaking, it is very easy to use the lens with a6300. The lens is not only good for macro photography but also suitable for portrait shooting as well.
Works for scanning film
Recently I have gotten into 35mm film photography and I needed a method to digitize my film. I wasn't happy with the image quality provided by Plustek and Epson scanners, so I have settled on DSLR scanning method. I already had my Fuji X-T3 and this lens seems to be a much cheaper alternative to Fuji's own macro lenses, while the reviews praised its optical qualities. I can confirm, optically this lens is excellent. I do not do any macro work, I only use it to digitize my film negatives. For that purpose it works, but I am only giving it 3 stars because of the following problems: first, the focus ring is to sensitive. Achieving perfect focus is extremely tricky even at f/8, you have to learn how to rotate the focus ring by a tiny fraction of one millimeter (yes, it's that extreme). The second problem with this lens is the lack of a tripod collar, which makes the camera quite unstable when on a tripod. And finally, this lens is not a true Fuji-X lens. It's simply too heavy, i.e. it's a full-frame lens with all full-frame problems such as bulk and weight, it's just adapted to Fuji mount. I find it borderline deceptive: I use Fuji's X-mount for compactness, why on earth would i want a full-frame lens on it? I am keeping it only because it's just a film scanner. Wouldn't use it otherwise.
I’ve had this lens for over a week now. It works great and suits my needs well. This is my 4th lens and my 2nd Rokinon. I’m an amateur photographer and I wanted to add a macro to my kit. It’s now my heaviest and largest lens, but it’s been a lot of fun to use. When working with still subjects, this lens is amazing because the manual focus provides total control. The focal length is also long enough that I haven’t run into any problems with shadows. I see now that if I had bought a lens with a shorter focal length, it would be frustrating to use in certain conditions. This lens is challenging to use with moving subjects, but I’ve only tried a couple times. A banana slug is pretty easy to handle, but a bee is difficult. Overall, the image quality looks great and it’s been really fun to use. If you’re primarily interested in still(ish) subjects and want to use a tripod, I highly recommend this lens.
High quality, lovely blur
I quickly fell for this lens: the build feels great, the focus is smooth, and the image quality is amazing. It doesn't feel too heavy at all (like others have mentioned). For the price, it seems to be one of the ones. I couldn't be happier with it.
Probably Good for Larger Formats
I purchased this for Micro Four Thirds use. Only later did I discover that it is designed to cover approx. 24mm X 36mm sensors. The lens would have to be incredibly sharp to be satisfactory on the much smaller MFT sensor, but it is not. It is probably sharp enough on the larger mirrorless sensors to be useful. I was already planning to return it when I got the request for review. I will replace it with a lens designed for MFT or similar size sensors. As others have pointed out, it is heavy, but that was not a serious issue for me. Lack of a dedicated tripod mount is a potential issue.
